SX89NW STATION ROAD
672-1/2/155 Waiting rooms immediately east of
24/08/89 Crediton Railway Station Main Range
Railway station waiting rooms. Mid C19, either 1851 for the
Exeter and Crediton Railway or 1862 for the LSWR. Timber
framed, clad with weatherboarding on brick footings.
Low-pitched slate hipped roof with lead rolls to hips and
ridge; cast iron gutters and downpipes.
Plan: Rectangular on plan. Canopy over platform.
Exterior: Central post with curved braces to centre bays.
Outer bays each have one narrow 8-pane sash; returns and rear
blind; canopy on timber cantilevers.
Interior: Boarded walls; simple original timber benches fixed
to walls. C20 patterned floor tiles, probably replacing brick
paving. Original complete roof structure of substantial king
post and strut trusses with curved braces below the tie beams.
Historical Note: The complicated early history of the line,
which began in 1838, led to its being known as 'The Vicar of
Bray Railway', but eventually the Exeter and Crediton Railway
(Act of 1845) was leased to the Bristol and Exeter Railway who
reconverted to broad guage and opened on May 12 1851 until the
LSWR took over the lease in 1862 (St John Thomas, pp.92-96).
A simple C19 railway building, one of a good group of mixed
dates at Crediton station.
